Thought I'd chime in.

Tested my old Sandisk 95 MB/S 32GB SDHC card and it can do the following til the card runs full:

BRAW 12:1 25/50/60fps
BRAW 8:1 25/50fps (60fps drops after 5 seconds)
BRAW 5:1 25fps (50/60fps drops after 2 seconds)

So happy. I think I'm gonna order 2 x 256GB cards for personal travelling. For work I think I'll just stick to T5's.

Hope this helps!

The Wise 1TB SSD costs $279 at B&H and comes with a mount.
It's designed for 4K video and suited to the new Pocket.
There seems to be the odd glitch with Samsung that I've never had using the Wise.

I have the 512GB T5 and not a problem. I also use cheap SD Flash cards.. got a 256GB UHSII Lexar for about $50 or so and that handles 4K30 at 12:1 no problem, as well as HD60 and 120 no problem. I havent fully gone for an hour straight or something like I do on my T5, but for $50 or so to be able to handle a couple hours of 12:1 BRAW... that is nuts!
